Benny Green for 'Jazz Showcase'
Friday, April 5, 2002 -
Benny Green grew up in Berkeley. He began classical studies at age 7, and by 12 was playing jazz, urged on by his father, an amateur jazz saxophonist who taught Benny tunes and exposed him to such jazz giants as Powell and Thelonius Monk. After studies with such Bay Area jazz pianists as Ed Kelly and Dick Whittington, Green moved to New York in 1983. There he worked with Betty Carter for four years and with Art Blakey from 1987
